Help! (Valentine's Day)
The other "room mom" and I are in charge of the kids' Valentine's day party at pre-school. We can delegate, assuming that the other parents stop screaming and running in the other direction when they see us coming. We are supposed to come up with a (nut free) snack, a craft, and a game or activity.
I have no ideas. Zip. Zilch.
Well, that's not entirely true - I have ideas, but they're all inappropriate. I don't know WHY my mind went immediately to Spin the Bottle when they said "game," it just did. I'm so wrong. Don't judge me.
(In my defense, in The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Birthday they play Spin the Bottle at Sister Bear's sixth birthday party. That's a parenting decision that makes me say, "WTF?" every time we read it. But I digress...)
I'm considering telling my co-room-mom that I'll do the snack (and I'll just get some pretty cupcakes at the store because I'm lazy and also I suck at cake decorating) if she'll do the other two, but I don't want to be a jerk about it.
So, I thought I'd appeal to my most creative readers. Any great Valentine's day ideas for preschoolers of the snack, game, or craft variety?
